Ton Dieker, assistant professor in the Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISyE) has been awarded an IBM Faculty Award. The IBM Faculty Awards is a competitive worldwide program intended to foster collaboration between researchers at leading universities worldwide and those in IBM research, development and services organizations, and promote courseware and curriculum innovation to stimulate growth in disciplines and geographies that are strategic to IBM. Candidates are nominated by an IBM employee with common interests who will serve as a liaison for the collaboration. Candidates must have an outstanding reputation for contributions in their field or, in the case of junior faculty, show unusual promise.
